What’s New?

In addition to the 1202 cc engine delivering an enhanced on-road performance, the 2018 Sportster Iron 1200 gets various other new features:

Handlebar – The new ape hanger handlebars are wider and higher than the Iron 883, and offer a more relaxed riding position and leverage while navigating corners.
Seat – A new fastback cafe seat with a more pronounced bump at the back keeps you from sliding back every time you accelerate.
Ignition – Gone are the days when you had to search around for motorcycle keys, as the all-new Sportster Iron 1200 comes with keyless ignition.

Design Features

The 2018 Sportster Iron 1200 is equipped to take on the urban grid, with matte black finish adorning everything from powertrain to air-filter cover to exhaust. The highlight of the design, however, is a bold, 70s-inspired gas tank that clearly exhibits the motorcycle’s classic roots. The Café Solo Seat pays homage to the heritage of the iconic Cafe Racer style. Other classic design elements include 9-spoke cast Aluminum wheels, and a fixed speed screen.

Ride Quality

The 2018 Sportster Iron 1200 features the same chassis, suspension setup and tyres as the Iron 883, but with a more powerful engine, the motorcycle feels much more powerful and lighter. With a five-speed transmission crunching the ratios and sending power to the rear wheel through a reinforced belt drive, the rider is always in control and can expect around 48 mpg in ideal riding conditions.
